Over the duration of Pussy Riot's set, the violence between police and activists heightened and eventually the entire group of protestors break through, get hold of the truncheons and chase the police officers into the castle. It was an entertaining, hardhitting and considering the pressure was on, as PR were the main reason I was there, it didn't disappoint.
Back at the stage, Kate Tempest was spitting her intense spoken word, the topics of performance was consumerism, materialism and happiness. It was a raw performance and she really left an impression on me - I've since listened to all her work on Spotify. At this point we stopped for food. Though it was fantastic that Dismaland is vegetarian, there was only 2 eateries and we waited over 20 minutes for a falafel wrap.
I had an amazing evening and am incredibly happy I got to see this fantastic collection of political art. When we were on our way in at the beginning of the evening, I heard a girl say this was her third time to Dismaland and thought she was greedy as so many people struggled to get tickets. On my way out I couldn't help but think about how I can see why someone would need to go this many times to see everything properly. Whilst visiting at night didn't always make for blog-post friendly photography, I definitely think seeing Dismaland lit up made the experience even better. Whilst on the subject of photos, Juan took a lot of these, so thank you for letting me use them!
